Administrative Updates (Allan Eustis):
EMC Requirements (Alan Goldfine):
The paper as discussed at the last CRT teleconference has been submitted to the editors for formatting and incorporation into VVSG draft. There was some tweaking to the informative language but nothing significant.
Reliability and Accuracy Benchmarks (David Flater):
Two small points: 1) We clarified the issue of how the device class control tabulator only listed benchmarks for non-user serviceable failures. The amendment made was under failure type, instead of non-user serviceable, it was changed to "all" with a footnote saying that apart from misfeeds (and jams) which are handled by a separate benchmark, TGDC experience is that central tabulator failures are never user serviceable. 2) The second issue was in regards to the misfeed rate. The benchmark was set on a 99% curve, meaning the benchmark was set so that a conforming device should leave no more than 1% chance of blowing the benchmark in the example election for the volume positive. In case of misfeeds, the benchmark was set to the rate quoted, 1 in 500.
Draft VVSG (Allan Eustis for John Wack):
The VVSG draft will go up on the web Friday and will be substantially the version that is printed for discussion at the May 21-22 plenary meeting. It is a near final draft, however some security sections are still preliminary. The plenary will focus mainly on issues of major concerns. On day 2, there will be discussion of the next steps and future TGDC meetings. We will also discuss the VVSG final review process. We are completing this document under the laws established by HAVA.
TGDC Logistics (Allan Eustis):
The web page is up as well with logistic information and draft agenda. TGDC members will receive a CD will all the information on it. Final VVSG will go on the web on Friday and also burned to CD sent to TGDC.
adjourned at 11:30 a.m.
to the Help America Vote Act of 2002, the TGDC is charged with directing
NIST in performing voting systems research so that the TGDC can fulfill
its role of recommending technical standards for voting equipment to the
EAC. This teleconference discussion served the purposes of the CRT subcommittee
of the TGDC to direct NIST staff and coordinate its voting-related research
relevant to the VVSG 2007. Discussions on this telecon are preliminary,
pre-decisional and do not necessarily reflect the views of NIST or the
